I just got the last spot on this trip. Its so close they wanted me to get a cashiers check from my bank. I haven't rode the boat in some time so I understand why they would not accept my check. Not a problem. Just checking to see if anyone is on this trip. This will be my first time on this trip. I think we might be the 1st boat down at HB because the Excel and the Intrepid didn't do there 15 day trips this year. Excited to be part of this trip.

The boat is great, The food is killer, But I don't know about the experience the new captain has fishing H.B. and the lower banks, Hopefully Mark or Paul will run the trip! Have fun.

Welcome aboard. Most of the guys on this trip have been together for about a decade. Nice group of men and excellent fishermen. Get ready to have a whole heck of a lot of fun.
Also, you can get on the boat Thanksgiving evening, the day before it leaves.If you want to do this, give Judy a call to let her know you’re coming down. There’s a small additional fee but it’s worth it to get on early and get all your stuff put away.

If one has never been fortunate enough to board a LR trip the night before you are in for a super perk! Every thing is slow and easy, get ta know some of the folks and the crew that babysits ya for the night. I have always felt the departure day included in 15 day 16 day ect trip was a bit of a jip ahahah B and I have chosen out yearly trips for our own reasons but the board early is a tie breaker for us.

Have a GREAT time David. Roger is a really good Charter master. Lots of goodies the year I went with him. Plus he's just plain "nice". The boat is really comfortable, even better than the other two we were on together! Crew was a lot of fun, Haven't fished with any of the skippers that are still on her though, enjoy my friend. :-) wish I could be there with you............

Have a great trip, David! I am surprised they insisted on a cashier's check. Interesting... Not sure what I think about it from a customer experience perspective. Especially considering how many trips you do.

Good luck, have fun and break a leg!

great boat & captain. I was on this trip last year and had a blast. Awesome group of fishermen that know their stuff & love sharing knowledge. If it wasn't for a Hawaian vacation next month with the family, I would be fishing with you. Got to keep the wife happy too. The food is dangerously good and you may gain a few lbs.

Hey Dave.
Try and put up a quick report if you can when you get back. I felt spoiled on my trip, hope you have the same experience. Sure wish I could go with you.

Very convenient way to board.
What happens when you have to use the bathroom?
Is the AC running or is it turned off?
Do you get a gate card so that you can leave the boat and re- enter ?
Is there a crew member on board in case of an emergency?
